1 outfit from day to night

daynight
Outfit: Isabel Marant Atika Jacket, Alexander Wang t-shirt, James Jeans, Hermes belt, Hermes Evelyne PM, Ankle boots, Chanel Timeless Clutch and Ferragamo pumps





Thanks to the ever changing and fast moving world of technology, we're busier than ever. I'm guilty of trying to cram a million things into one day. Thankfully, I'm fortunate enough to have a group of fellow moms who live no more than a 10 minute walking distance from me who are a back up support to each other whenever help is needed. Once every few months, we would make the extra effort to catch up over a glass of wine at a local pub or restaurant. Let's face it, we love our husbands and kids to bits but we'll love them even more once we've managed to get a breather from them as well.

By the time I tuck Lil L in bed after dinner, homework and bath, I barely have time to change and get ready for an evening out with my friends. Often, I would wear the same outfit, swap the accessories and voila, a different look.

**A huge thanks to my photography guru, Alice of Lingered Upon who taught me how to create collages. Always cheerful and exceedingly patient with my million and one questions. This girl's going places. Check out her amazing photography here.

    1. Estrella, I've physically stopped myself from walking into stores. My wardrobe in NZ was made up of pieces I purchased from sales. None of them go with each other so I know exactly what you mean. I'm one of those that can't live without lists. I make a list of what I want/need and seldom deviate from it.

  8. Ahhhhhh... gorgeous! effortless! As your style always is! And I love your comment to Estrella - WALKING INTO STORES are dangerous. I will physically stop from now on. Been a maniac the past month with all the sales going on - I get so easily distracted when going out to buy milk or bread that I come back with bag loads of clothes and I still have nothing to wear!!!!
